Daniels: Peterson Misled Voters On Reassessment Order
By now you've heard that campaign commercial of Mayor Bart Peterson's (D) where he brags about how Gov. Daniels' decision to order a reassessment of property in Marion County happened because he "banded together" with us to force the Governor to do it. Abdul Hakim-Shabazz reports that Daniels disputes Peterson's account. Shabazz writes, "Daniels politely said he didn't recall the Mayor ever contacting him and said sometimes campaign commercials can 'color outside the lines.'" He continues, "He says he spoke to the Mayor about the ad, and Peterson admitted that upon reflection the ad probably 'overstated the case.'" Guilty as charged?
